Welcome to Lucina Midwives. Our clinic is located in the beautiful Lucina Centre, in close proximity to the Misericordia hospital in the west-end of Edmonton. We are a small group of midwives providing maternity care to healthy women and their families during the childbearing year. As registered midwives, we offer holistic, individualized, evidence-based care during pregnancy, labour, birth and the first six weeks after your baby is born. We believe that having a baby is a profound and deeply important event in a woman’s life.

Our goal is to support you in making informed choices that will allow this experience to be positive and empowering. Our model of care enables us to build a personal relationship with you over the course of your pregnancy. We value this continuity of care because we believe that women feel safest and well supported during labour and birth when they are with a known and trusted care provider. As primary care givers our services are fully funded by Alberta Health Services. They do not yet fund free standing birthing centres so therefore there is a facility fee for the Birthing Centre. We look forward to meeting you and discussing your wishes and needs for maternity care.
